Character Interview: Rhylan Aryon

Rhylan is Rynn‘s older brother and crown prince of Scythia. He’s fiercely loyal, protective of those he loves, and dedicated to doing what’s best for Scythia when it’s up to him. Enjoy his interview. :)

Rhylan: *enters and shakes the interviewer’s hand* Hello.

Interviewer: Hello. How are you?

Rhylan: Doing well. How are you?

Interviewer: Doing just fine. Are you ready to begin?

Rhylan: *nods and takes a seat*

Interviewer: What’s your name?

Rhylan: Crown Prince Rhylan Thaniel Aryon. But just Rhylan is fine. *chuckles*

Interviewer: That’s quite a name. How old are you?

Rhylan: Nineteen.

Interviewer: You’re crown prince. At what point do you become king?

Rhylan: Now that I’m an adult, I could take it at any time it’s necessary. I get the throne if my father dies or if he decides to step down. I also act as king within the country if my father is away on business in another country.

Interviewer: Interesting. Are you looking forward to stepping up?

Rhylan: *nods* I feel… as prepared as one can be. *chuckles* I already have some plans for when I become king, and I’ll have good advisors around me. My father’s council is full of wise leaders.

Interviewer: What are some of your plans?

Rhylan: I’d rather not talk about them right now, if that’s all right.

Interviewer: *nods and glances at question list* You have a sister, Rynn. *looks back up* How would you describe your relationship with her?

Rhylan: We’re extremely close. We trust each other with anything and everything, and I’d do anything to protect Rynn, even if that does mean I’m frequently fishing her out of trouble. *grins* She keeps things exciting, that’s for sure.

Interviewer: What’s the most trouble she’s gotten herself into?

Rhylan: Up to this point, probably the time she slipped her guard–an impressive feat in itself–and sneaked into a group of people going camping on the edge of the woods. She was almost captured by the Lenorae before Kallum and I found her.

Interviewer: What are the Lenorae?

Rhylan: They’re a forest-dwelling race that don’t usually like humans. That’s pretty much everything we know about them.

Interviewer: Are you an introvert or an extrovert?

Rhylan: An introvert, but I’ve always been good with people despite that.

Interviewer: What’s your favorite food?

Rhylan: Any pie baked by Issabelle Eckard. She’s the best baker I think I’ve ever met. It’s almost a shame she doesn’t make a profession of it. *chuckles*

Interviewer: Do you have a favorite color?

Rhylan: Dark brown.

Interviewer: Any particular reason?

Rhylan: It seems like a warm, healthy color. Like fresh earth.

Interviewer: Do you like to read?

Rhylan: *laughs* Are you kidding? I love to read. Studying is one of my favorite things.

Interviewer: Do you have a favorite subject?

Rhylan: History and politics.

Interviewer: Those seem like useful topics for a prince to be well-versed in. What is your favorite animal?

Rhylan: I like birds of prey. Falcons, hawks, that sort of thing. I have a pet falcon named Aura, actually.

Interviewer: Besides studying, what are some of your hobbies?

Rhylan: I enjoy gardening occasionally, playing the piano, recreational reading, hunting, horseback riding, exploring… I like a good number of things. *chuckles*

Interviewer: Which of these is most important to you: kindness, intelligence, or bravery?

Rhylan: Bravery.

Interviewer: And honesty or selflessness?

Rhylan: Selflessness.

Interviewer: Is there anything you can’t leave home without?

Rhylan: A dagger, just in case.

Interviewer: That was the final question. Thank you for your time. *smiles*

Rhylan: Thank you. I enjoyed it. *smiles and shakes the interviewer’s hand before leaving*
